There was at least one member of the Denver Broncos who showed respect towards Tom Brady and the Patriots - running back CJ Anderson.
He posted a picture of he and Brady talking after the AFC Championship Game on Instagram and wrote a heartfelt message to go with the photo.
I know a lot of people hate this man but man when he was pick 199 and was over look he inspired me I was undrafted and over came all the odds so bless what he told me at the end of this game. He said "CJ way to fight and prove everybody wrong you belong in this league and your one hell of a player I love the way you run keep climbing to be great" those words meant so much growing up watching Tom overcame I'm proud to say I'm 3-2 vs his teams and proud to say I get to battle him every year. Thanks Tom for telling me those words they will stick and I know a lot of people don't like you but I have MAD RESPECT. Thanks I see you overcome as others in this league and now it's my turn. 💯🏈🙏🏾🙏🏾
Great showing of class from Brady and Anderson here.
